Justice Minister in Sudan for African political parties meeting

Zambia’s Justice Minister, Wynter Kabimba, is in Sudan for the 5th Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Council of African Political Parties (CAPP).

Speaking on arrival in Khartoum, Kabimba, who is the organisation's President, emphasised the role of the CAPP in bringing African political parties together to focus on the continent's common agenda.

The meeting, which commences on Monday, will focus on the establishment of two important wings of CAPP, the women and the youth wings, according to an official statement released on Sunday in Lusaka.

In its draft statutes of the two wings, which will be tabled during the meeting, CAPP reaffirms the role of the women and youth and their contribution in mobilising political, economic, social and cultural potentials in the continent and directing these potentials towards the development process.

While in Sudan, Kabimba will also hold meetings with the country's Vice President Hasabo M. Abdurrahman and several government and party officials.
